Former Ducks stay-at-home, “Not in my kitchen, you don’t” Sean O’Donnell called it a day on playing portion of his NHL career. ‘Owe-dee” is too well liked and respected to think his days in NHL hockey are over. He prepared for media work in his final years as a player.
Always a cut-up, during an interview with Chris Pronger as Owe-dee walks by and mutters, “Tell ‘em how much you like playing with your partner.”
For 19 consecutive years Sean O’Donnell brought a lunch pail and a mischievous grin to the rink. He played through nagging injuries that would keep most of us in bed for a week.
Between 2005-2008 Owe-dee played 182 regular season and 43 playoff games with our Ducks. His value isn’t in the goals and assists but TOI, Hits and Blocked Shots, stats not readily available.
His playing career is over but hockey isn’t done with Sean O’Donnell.
